Just another magic sunset

Posted by
dobbino (Cape Town, South Africa) on 15 April 2009 in Landscape & Rural.

Almost missed this, but for a call from Jacqui. We see many different sunsets from our balcony at the flat, but this one was very different, almost being divided halfway, with reds on the left and yellows on the right. Rushed off to fit my wide angle lens, and then still applied a crop to get the effect that we saw.
